Today I suffered with a huge downer in mood despite England beating Sweden and advancing to the semi-finals of the World Cup! I struggled with fancying nice food, although I did not cheat, but I really wanted to!
My readings are slightly up and that has frustrated me for a while. I’m eating the same food and the insulin same intake seems to be lead to results 1.0 higher than previously. It’s not a huge deal but it messes with my averages and makes me look like I’m slightly less controlled than I was before. But I’m doing exactly the same thing!
It was only the tea time reading that went slightly wrong again so I’ve made a note on my board that injecting 10 units with my full evening meal with all the trimmings results in +2.5 or so after 5 hours. I will get it right! The nurse said as long as it’s under 10 it’s alright, but I hope to get nearer to the 7.0 range more often than not.
